One of the most important circuit configurations you need to recognize is the series and parallel connection of circuit elements.

The video will describe these special but frequent cases when applying the connection constraints, namely, Kirchoff’s Voltage Law (KVL) and Kirchoff’s Current Law (KCL).

When circuit elements are connected in series, then each circuit element has the same current going through it. When circuit elements are connected in parallel, then each circuit element has the same voltage across it. The definitions of series and parallel connections are described in the video.
